The steamer BLANCHARD struck an obstruction off Waugoshance last week that is thought to be the wreck of the schooner WILLIAM YOUNG, which foundered in that locality a short time ago. The steamer DORDRECHT is a tramp steamer built on the Tyne recently and is similar in some respects to the ordinary type of lake steamers. In a trial trip she obtained a speed of 9 + knots. Her dimensions are 282 feet over all, 37 feet beam and 19 feet 8 inches depth. At the trial the cargo consisted of 2,800 tons of coal. The engines were built by the Northeastern Marine Engineering Company, the company that furnished the engines for the whaleback steamer BARTLETT. The cylinders are 20 +, 34, 56 by 39, and 980 horse power was developed.
